How to promote democracy

If the United States government were interested in promoting democracy and freedom, a simple, safe and cheap way to do it would be to stop giving military and economic aid to governments that practice rape, torture and murder.

This doesn’t require invasions, bombings or funding of foreign fighters.  Nor economic sanctions.  Just stop writing checks.
